us money is beijing. and people don't think about that, but eventually there are policy consequences to being indebted. can you really to continue to be the freest, most powerful country in the world if you're the biggest debtor nation in the history of the world? i think the answer is, no. and then you have to look at who you owe that money to. and in china's case, um, i think you have to put a value proposition on who these guys are. um, and this goes back to our original gamble. if we engage them -- i mean, the alternative is another question, but, you know, if we continue to engage them and make them richer and they're not becoming freer, well, let's take apart exactly how bad these people are to see how this policy is working. and i'll just go through a few examples. um, one is -- and this is, i think, when i was promoting this book, i did tons and tons of radio, and one of the things that people hadn't heard of before is how, um, china uses the judicial system, um, to feed the black market for organs for transplants in the whole world. there's a huge demand because

to citizens like the filter bubbles a wonderful issue increasingly facebook doesn't ask us to say something important because they want us to like it so they can give us more stuff that we like and they will show that first. that does not -- we may have friends are black and hispanic but we tend to orient toward those that have the same world view that we do. we do much more of that. and so, i think one of the most dangerous trends in the united states over the long term is that we are deepening the segmentation of the orientations that we have in our political and social preferences and clearly our politics in washington reflect that. i don't know how. it's an interesting observation. but absolutely the diversification of the ethnic composition in the united states as a mitigating factor. >> welcome this is really been an interesting conversation and i feel very lucky to have had a chance to talk with you and all the other knowledgeable people here. i don't have a copy of the real cover of the book right here, but every nation for itself i believe there are books in the back. by
